A woman has been charged in a Belfast court with murdering a baby.

The infant died on 9 April, according to the PSNI, following an incident in Connsbrook Ave in east Belfast last month.

The 30-year-old woman was arrested in March and was detained under the Mental Health Act.

She was brought before Belfast Magistrates’ Court after being charged today and has since been remanded into medical care.

During the hearing the court put reporting restrictions in place to protect the woman’s identity under the terms of Britain’s Human Rights Act.
